Henry Thomas-Old Country Stomp


Published June 13, 1928


Recorded on June 13, 1928. Stephen Calt calls this a square dance tune, which were still popular with rural african-americans early in the 20th-century. Calt also posits that tunes such as this one raise the possibility that Thomas' primary audience was white.

Beautiful sound of panpipes... now y'all know where Canned Heat likely got their inspiration for "Goin' Up The Country".
